Croydon’s young people have more time to share health views

Children now have more time to get involved in a survey about their health and wellbeing.

The council is urging teachers, and anyone working with children and young people to support them in completing the health and wellbeing survey by Friday, 10 February.

The survey is for all school-aged children in Croydon in years four, six, eight, 10 and 12 to fill-in. They are being asked about a range of topics including mental health, diet, exercise, sleep, relationships, and their general wellbeing. The council would especially like to hear from more secondary school aged pupils and those with special educational needs.

The survey results will be used to develop council plans for children and young people’s services. Detailed reports on the results will be produced for each school and Croydon as a whole. This means that schools and other agencies can use the information to deliver the best possible support to young people in the borough.

There is more information on the council website for anyone who would like their child or children to take part. Home-schooled children and those not in a school setting can also complete the survey.

“We have extended the deadline to give more children and young people in Croydon the opportunity to complete this important survey. We want to hear about their lives to ensure they get the right support for their emotional, physical, and mental health and wellbeing. We look forward to receiving everyone’s views as this will help the council and those working to educate and support children to keep improving the services we offer to them in our borough.”

Jason Perry, Executive Mayor of Croydon
